Confused about how much space is being used on 64 gig MacBook Air.
I've done the math on all the files that we have on it. Totals up to about 30 gigs. We have a 64 gig HD and it says we only have 6 gigs left to use. This makes no sense to me. I've cleaned out the downloads and the trash, got rid of all the useless logs, reset Safari and got rid of a lot of cache. Other than just completely wiping out the hard drive, I'm spent for ideas.

Are there any accounts set up other than the one you are using?

Does the amount of free space go up significantly when you restart the machine?

If the answer to these is "no," then download a copy of Grand Perspective (free) or Disk Inventory X (also free) and see if that gives you any clues as to where the culprit is hiding.
